Bill Nye the Science Guy:
Science educator Bill Nye questioned Broun's ability to serve on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, stating,'"Since the economic future of the United States depends on our tradition of technological innovation, Representative Broun's views are not in the national interest"' and that '"He is, by any measure, unqualified to make decisions about science, space, and technology."
Paul Broun is as uneducated and unethical as a politician can be. He's about as smart as a bag of hammers. The voters that put him in office REALLY should be embarrassed for the irresponsibility of their actions in such a serious matter.
Agreed.

How so? What do you disagree with in that article?
Specifically, I'm NOT asking how the article makes you FEEL, or if it does or doesn't fit in with your pre-programmed views. I'm asking what failures, logically, are there in what was written?

# 1- An opinion piece.
2- The Washington Post-in my opinion is a biased paper. My opinion is as good as the other fellas opinion.
3-An article written May 9 that conveniently left out that the Inspector General would be investigating the Pickering report itself which should include informed persons who had knowledge about the incident that the Pickering report failed to interview.

4 –An article obviously biased against Issa with Eugene’s comment “I can only hope that Issa’s witch hunt.”
With the “Witch hunt.” Comment Eugene shot himself in the foot while shooting off his mouth without any decent investigation, Eugene relied on his bias.

I realized you fall for such crap because you have blinders, but any self- respecting person can read the article and pick up on the bias real easy, hence a useless post in my opinion by Oh my. And this is not the first time Oh my has posted useless crap by mother jones, Huffington and other liberal websites.

Yall are afraid of posting any two sides of any story involving Obama your mama, for why should you question your God.

Well, surprise, surprise - according to the Associated Press, the IRS is apologizing for "inappropriately flagging conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status."
The head of the unit that oversees tax-exempt groups, Lois Lerner,
admitted "organizations that included the words "tea party" or "patriot" in their applications for tax-exempt status were singled out for additional reviews."

News report tell, White House Secretary, Jay Carney, took a beating today as he answerd Benghazi questions.No wonder MSM showed only 5 second snippets. According to news outlets, he was ripped to shreds as he appeared awkward, stuttered & back-tracked. His worst performance, thus far..... just another puppet.

I don't believe he'll win. I have no issues with his voting record, others are talking and voting like Broun (Gingrey especially). Broun doesn't beat around the bush. A couple of emotionally crazed statements doesn't make him unworthy. Once again, what facts do you have against him, not talking points or opinions.

I beg to differ. The socialists, those that truly believe in those principles, are being used by the fascists that rule the left. Those socialists who are probably more likely naïve idealists are soon to find out just how deceitful the leadership really is.

While all of the above points documenting failures at high levels to address security shortfalls must be addressed, those are really not my biggest concern, though it is POSSIBLE they serve to answer my question - WHY was it so important for the Obama administration to put forth the fiction about the video, when they KNEW it was fiction. Was the Obama WH trying to avoid scrutiny of the inadequate security? Is that the reason for what can without doubt now be called a cover up? I don't know. Or is there some other reason? But that is the crux of the issue - WHY the need to push the video narrative?

And ABC and CBS are finally waking up to the need to have questions answered. It's about da-n time.

After working for these greedy corporate theives for many years and watching them pay low wages while the upper Ceo's make millions and then ripping off folks 401K's Socialism not Communism is a damn good alternative. CEO's sit back draw most of the wages and then pay underlings minimum wage and no benefits. America is fed up and their days are numbered.

Did Clinton’s State Department fail to provide adequate security for the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi? In retrospect, obviously so. But the three diplomats who testified at the hearing gave no evidence that this failure sprang from anything other than the need to use limited resources as efficiently as possible.
House Republicans who voted to cut funding for State Department security should understand that their philosophy — small government is always better — has consequences. Bureaucrats have to make judgment calls. Sometimes they will be wrong.
